I'm not familiar enough with the Dropkick Murphys to say, but there is something special about the way this song sums up a particular immigrant experience - it's a unique cocktail of lust, substance abuse, resentment and affection that I have not seen expressed anywhere else.

Reminds me of me own childhood in the heavily Irish-American suburbs of Boston, and yes I am Irish-American myself, so I get to say whatever I want about the drunken louts. :>)
